Google Maps Street View: Reddit user spots embarrassing moment for London builder | Travel News | Travel

Google Maps Street View offers eager explorers the change to navigate their way around the world at street level. While it is great for finding directions or simply learning more about an area, it also has another common use.

Though the accidental exposure could have left the builder red-cheeked, the good news is his face is hidden, and there are no remarkable features that could give his identity away.

Furthermore, Google also blurs faces as part of its privacy policy.

This means the two in-person witnesses also remain anonymous.

Google’s Street View camera is particularly good at snapping slightly embarrassing moments.

Luckily, his identity is also concealed thanks to face-blurring technology.

“Google takes a number of steps to protect the privacy of individuals when Street View imagery is published to Google Maps,” explains the website’s privacy policy.

“We have developed cutting-edge face and license plate blurring technology that is designed to blur identifiable faces and license plates within Google-contributed imagery in Street View.

“If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house, car, or body, submit a request using the ‘Report a problem’ tool.”
